I have been trying to keep hearing the music from www.pandora.com but they have beem shut down for some reasion that's affecting my quality of life. I have had to start returning www.lastfm.com but I think it will begone like some pod cast in a few months time.

So I want pandora. I have tried a number of proxies including google translate to route the music through to NZ,
But it all seams lots, like the electric car and rocket trains.

It could be something to do with contract agreements or copyright things.

I used to listen to 102.7 Kiis Fm Los Angeles online until they stopped alowing people to access it outside the USA. They said that it was because the contracts with some voice over actors didn't allow them to broadcast their stuff outside the USA.

It was really annoying but I haven't tried using proxy servers so I might give it a try although I don't think that it will work.




Can't beat the burble of that American V8. Ohh yea!

Last week Pandora notified its users that it would start blocking connections from outside the U.S. due to copyright management and licensing issues.

Yep, expect to see more of this sort of thing happening as a new law passes which bumps up the performance rights costs for music broadcasters in the USA.  It will put a lot of the smaller home hobbyists/internet stations out of buisiness.. and some of the larger stations may also looks at limiting their internet reach.

And you wonder why music piracy is so rampant? This is just another example of the music industry going about the online music revolution the wrong way. All they do is encourage more of the activity they are trying to curb.





Chorus has spent $1.4 billion on making their xDSL broadband network faster. If your still stuck on ADSL or VDSL, why not spend from $150 on a master filter install to make sure you are getting the most out of your connection?

Yes, the music industry is being very slow to adopt new ways to reach their markets. Cutting off such services is not the best way of getting to "touch" their users...

Unless you consider a punch in the nose to be a touch. I liked that website. It was handy when I had no mp3s. Whats the bet they'll cull all the music from youtube aswell.
